The Yale University Art Gallery hosted a 12-hour open house for students, staff, and faculty on Dec. 6. The renovation and expansion project has united three historic buildings into a cohesive whole: the 1953 modernist 
structure designed by Louis Kahn, the 1928 Old Yale Art Gallery designed by Egerton Swartwout , the contiguous 1866 Street Hall, designed by Peter Bonnett Wight (and home to the gallery from 1867 to 1928).
